Song for a Saturday – Bette Davis Eyes

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, there was a woman I used to go pubbing with and this song was always playing on the jukebox:-

 

She too, knew how to make a pro blush, but I was always too old for that.

I still can’t hear the song without immediately thinking of her. Even though that woman’s completely gone from my life now, as long as Kim Carnes gets air play I’ll remember her.

Songs, books, films – many of them have particular memories attached, associations with people, places and experiences, building blocks in our own personal Palace of Memory.

    I heard this song for the first time in 1980 or ’81, on my little AM/FM portable. I was 17 and already in love with Ms. Carnes (and Pat Benatar). Ah, youth.
